At Jean Brooks Landscapes, we are proud to provide the three most important components to successful gardens: a carefully conceived thoughtful design, a perfectly orchestrated and implemented installation, and most importantly, an ongoing maintenance program that will shepherd your garden through the years into its maturity. This is what makes us unique.
Gardens are a great way to improve your space on your property. The factors and items to consider when designing your perfect garden all depend on the type of space you’re envisioning. At Jean Brooks Landscapes, we specialize in various gardens. Our professional design team is able to help you bring your ideal garden to life, install it without error and maintain it perfectly. We specialize in the following areas:
Country gardens are gorgeous, open space gardens. Country estates are plentiful in acreage, and present a challenge in filling the space while still keeping the unrestricted, wild aesthetic. Everything is free and easy in the country, and your landscaping should reflect the unbridled beauty and peaceful atmosphere. The landscaping can be heavily influenced by the architecture of the house, be it a small country cottage, a quaint farmhouse, or even a more stately mansion. At Jean Brooks Landscapes, we work tirelessly to create a space that looks natural, without overcrowding.
Rooftop gardens make an attractive addition to any urban setting. However, they can be difficult to plan due to several factors. Weight restrictions play a large role in the building phase of the landscaping process. The goal is to make the beds as lightweight as possible, while still maintaining their integrity. Plastic, fiberglass, or foam containers help keep weight down while retaining a visual aesthetic.
Wind is more of a problem at these higher altitudes. Utilizing windbreaks can be very helpful, but caution is necessary as solid windbreaks can be knocked over. It’s better to use something that won’t block the wind, but rather simply disrupt it. A lattice, for example, will still allow a breeze through but will redirect some of it so it’s less destructive. Our team at Jean Brooks Landscapes will help to create a durable, functional, and charming rooftop garden.
All gardens are heavily influenced by the surrounding environment. Crisp white, inky black, and neutral shades of gray create a stark background for lush greenery and vivid flowers. Raised beds and potted plants lend more depth to the landscape. Seaside gardens offer a relaxing way to enjoy the peace of the ocean. Jean Brooks Landscapes will help you to design, install, and maintain your seaside garden, allowing you to fully escape into the beauty of the sea.
Planting in containers is the most versatile way to garden. These vessels are the perfect way to display seasonal annual flora. Display bewitching plants in eclectic urns and rustic pots. As you transition your plants from containers to flower beds, you make room for even more plants.
As with rooftop gardens, the general issue in urban areas is spatial. There’s generally less room for a generous expanse of vegetation. Instead, in urban areas we have learned to do a lot with a little. The understated beauty of a simple window box, with carefully chosen flowers, can be the perfect touch.
